"This textbook of 'issues and experiences' is a counselor educator's equivalent to a musician's master class. It offers a deep dive into every aspect of what contemporary counselor educators' worlds of work entail. In this 'must read,' Drs. Okech and Rubel and their contributing authors provoke inquiry and scrutiny on topics we encounter daily, including ethical practice, professional vitality, and counselor identity."
—Kurt L. Kraus, EdD
"Drs. Okech and Rubel present a masterful, in-depth look into the world of counselor education and academia. Although they wrote the book to help master's students transition from graduate school to counselor education, the text is also highly valuable for tenured faculty considering leadership positions and counselor educators seeking to improve their mentoring skills."

"Counselor Education in the 21st Century provides a comprehensive perspective of what being a counselor educator looks and feels like on a day-to-day basis, including the required skills and tasks that are often not covered in doctoral curricula. The authors' insights offer a heightened awareness of best practices, what to anticipate, and how to facilitate optimal success as cutting-edge counselor education faculty."

This distinctive text provides master's- and doctoral-level students, as well as new professionals, with a thorough exploration of the range of responsibilities, working conditions, roles, evaluation criteria, benefits, and challenges experienced by counselor educators. Each chapter focuses on a key aspect of the field, including teaching; supervision; mentoring; gatekeeping; research and grant writing; tenure; adjunct, part-time, and nontenured positions; program administration; leadership; and collegiality and wellness.
